I only have my phone, but I have a Terminal app 🙂. Here's the config; I used the LuCI web interface to manage it. It doesn't seem to make a difference whether I join the client network then create the AP, or create the AP then join the network.

In this instance, I joined the network after creating the AP...

root at OpenWrt:~# cat /etc/config/wireless

config wifi-device 'radio0'
        option type 'mac80211'
        option hwmode '11g'
        option path 'platform/ar933x_wmac'
        option htmode 'HT40'
        option txpower '15'
        option country 'CR'
        option disabled '0'
        option channel '1'

config wifi-iface
        option device 'radio0'
        option network 'lan'
        option mode 'ap'
        option ssid 'Treehouse'
        option encryption 'psk2+ccmp'
        option key '*****'

config wifi-iface
        option network 'wwan'
        option ssid 'LA PAZ'
        option encryption 'psk2'
        option device 'radio0'
        option mode 'sta'
        option bssid '00:21:6C:DA:56:85'
        option key '*****'
